Obama To Illegally Implement Cap And Trade Plan Without Approval Of Congress


Remember that time when we overthrew a tyrannical king and built a nation on this crazy notion that we shouldn’t have a supreme ruler presiding over us with tons of power? Those were some good times, but all good things must come to an end, as Obama is showing yet again by illegally implementing a cap and trade plan without Congressional approval.

Despite being soundly rejected a few years ago, cap-and-trade will soon get its U.S. encore – but not in Congress. The Obama administration will likely use its executive power to unilaterally impose carbon dioxide emissions trading systems.

The Environmental Protection Agency will unveil regulations for existing U.S. power plants early next month. For months, onlookers have been speculating about what could be included in the EPA’s rule for existing power plants.

But over the past few days it has become clear that the Obama administration will use the EPA to push cap-and-trade systems and other anti-fossil fuel policies on U.S. states. Administration insiders have told news outlets that cap-and-trade will likely be one of the options the EPA gives states to cut their carbon dioxide emissions.

The amount of executive power that Obama has given himself is nauseating, not to mention alarming. The whole point of the separation of powers was to prevent such abuses of power — but then, since when did Mr. Constitutional Scholar care much about the constitution, anyway?
